Another one a bit different for me and I won some candy..

Hi everyone, I know it's been a while since I last posted anything, although I have been trying to keep up with everyone's blogs,.... if I haven't visited you yet I am catching up  slowly and I'll get there soon...

 I made this for  Olivia, who loves drawing Manga characters, but as Ididn't have any Manga images I used the decoupage from a Rock Hard Fairies sheet, added a touch of silver stickles here 'n there and star dust on her wings. Printed the red sun burst and the greeting on photo paper, then used spray and sparkle over the greeting. Backing paper, black card and mirri paper all from stash. Coloured the little flower gems with permanent markers as I didn't have any black ones.
I know... I really should learn how to take a photo without making it look all wonky.
Hope you like it, Livvy did.

While I was trying to catch up I visited Jackie's blog Day's in the Life of...who is part of the LaPashe DT, saw there was a candy on offer, I quickly put my name down on Sunday, the draw was Monday and yippee I won it. Thank you so much Jackie and Jak. If you haven't visited Jackie before pop along to her blog to see her lovely cards and have a laugh at her posts about her granddaughter.
I received my candy today from Jak the Designer, you've probably all visited Jaks blog Crafters Kitchen  but if you haven't it's a must see, beautiful cards and lots of free downloads too, fabulous..and she is showcasing  some cards made with the new soon to be released sheets. I bought quite a few of the Remember when Christmas series last year, and love them now I can make more for this year, plus I won the whole set of the new Flippin Xmas, can't wait to have a play, if you want to have a chance of winning them Karen another DT member is offering candy till Sunday..I feel I'd be too greedy  to go and enter, but why don't you go and see if you will be as lucky as I was.

                Thanks for popping by..I really appreciate it..
